Got some fun readings coming up this month, and it'd be boss if you could join me!
First one will be at my favorite all-time reading venue: Jimmy's Woodlawn Tap. In addition to being right in my hood, this is a historic Hyde Park bar with a lot of friendly faces and a great room for spitting some words. The lineup will include Joe Peterson who's launching his new short story collection, 99 Bottles, and Stuart Ross who's got a brand new novel coming out with Tortoise Books, called Jenny in Corona. Here are the details:
Date: November 9
Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Jimmy's Woodlawn Tap, 1172 E. 55th Street, Chicago
The second event is one I'm incredibly excited to be part of. It's a fundraiser/book launch for Hypertext Review. For those who don't know, Hypertext Review -- in addition to being a kick-ass literary magazine -- is a studio that brings story-telling classes to underserved populations throughout Chicago. This event will be a launch for the new issue of the magazine, but it'll be also be a fundraiser so they can continue to support their incredible mission. The bonus here is that the event will be at the Hideout, which I've never read at before, but have always wanted to. Kind of a dream come true for me. Here are the details:
Date: November 13
Location: The Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia, Chicago
Hope to see you at either or both of these events!
